I received this email from Morrison's former trainer, Tom Virgets... but have been unable to get an update since. This was on July 24th, 2012:

Jonny,

Tommy is in the last stages of HIV/AIDS. He is weighing approximately 150 lbs. He has lost most of his mental faculties ( may or may not remember people from day to day)) and spends most of his days in bed. I am afraid that he will not last more than a month or two. Tommy continues to believe that he does not have aids. He is convinced that this most recent set back in his health is due to a spider bite.

Tom

When was the last confirmed contact with Tommy or Trish ? How accurate is this info given ?

Hooked on this shit, what the **** is going on with this guy.

EDIT - Posted that before your second post ironmark
Probably already passed then

It pains me to say it but if he isn't already dead then he's likely very, very close to it.

Steroids or not (lots of stories floating about over the years) he used to be a large, muscular man, with very young looks. Over a relatively short time he's REALLY aged, looking terrible even for a person 15 years his senior.

Recent photos he seems gaunt, sick, malnourished, weak, the list goes on; so clearly there's something severely wrogn with his health. The whole HIV/AIDS talk seems pretty clear cut, though obvious we, as the general public, are denied any blank adn white document saying yes or no.

Photos of his finger rotting, stick thin legs, lesions etc are a bit too coincidental with all of the HIV accusations in my opinion; this story about his wife/gf sound certainly feasible - i've seen on facebook and forums the odd message from her and she seems to come up with weird, almost ludicrous, stories to explain why he hasn't messaged himself.

It's all very strange...

I don't tend to voice my opinions on here very much but reading these posts does show how far gossip develops. I don't have any updates from trisha to post but that may well be just because they would like a bit of privacy in what must be a difficult time. Id love to know what's happening as much as any fan would and I think its more out of concern for a sporting hero rather than some morbid fascination with tragedy hat we ask so many questions. Ultimately though we don't have to be told anything.

I will always have fond memories, but would like to know what is happening?


As a fan of the sport that I love and one that he was apart of I do want to know.

Strange strange story surrounding Tommy, wierd.
Testing negative for HIV once you've contracted it doesnt mean you don't have it.

what was the theory of how morrison contracted hiv?

appreciate your insight on morrison by the way.

Ya Hip C is pasted through blood to blood contact only. One of the main avenues of transmission is via used needles. Makes you wonder about his Steriods use being part of his disease development.

The purplish lesions on his R forearm are Kaposi Sarcoma. He developed a fairly large abdomen in 2007 consistent with lipodystrophy after sustained antiretroviral treatment.

He had documented T cell counts of 3 and 18 just prior to that.

He's likely dead.

Man, I don't know how much of what's been posted is truth and what's trolling, but if he really has passed, it's incredibly unfortunate that he hasn't had a proper send off from the boxing community.
